Hazeland Court Project
Some vocational students from Lutterworth College Enterprise Centre, under the tutorage of Jane Beaumont from Lutterworth College, Elaine Turner, a Governor of the College and a Rotarian, together with husband George Turner and friend Tilly Yates are in the process of transforming part of the Hazeland Court garden into a place of produce, plants and tranquility for the residents of the sheltered accommodation in Guthlaxton Avenue.
The idea of involving these students is to give them the opportunity to gain a NOCN Award in Garden Horticulture and at the same time giving them an insight into working with volunteers in the Community and developing their interpersonal skills and confidence.
Lutterworth College Enterprise Centre with the support of Lutterworth Rotary Club have worked in a practical way enhancing the local environment and helped to raise awareness in the wider community of the good contribution which young students have made over the last four years and hope to continue for many more.
